Andersen Perma Shield Patio Doors

With a Perma Shield door, weatherstripping helps seal out drafts and water. Unique Andersen locking hardware pulls the door panel snugly into the jamb for an even better seal and enhanced security. These doors can help you lower your energy bills and prevent mold, mildew, and water damage from a poorly sealed door. These doors also have slim profiles so you can enjoy your view.

What Are Perma Shield Doors Made Of?

Andersen 200 Series Perma-Shield doors have a wood core that’s protected by a vinyl surface for low maintenance. The interior and exterior will never need painting, and it resists dents and repels water for long-lasting protection. The sill has an aluminum rack with a stainless steel cap, and it resists rust and dents.

Can Perma Shield Doors be Customized?

These doors are available with one or two panels, and you can choose a custom size. A permanent exterior grille or an interior grille that you can remove for cleaning can give your door the look of a classic window with panes. You can also get a grille between dual-pane glass for easy cleaning. Grille styles include:

  • Colonial
  • Modified Colonial
  • Modified Colonial – Simulated Check Rail
  • Prairie
  • Short Fractional
  • Short Fractional - Simulated Check Rail
  • Tall Fractional
  • Tall Fractional – Simulated Check Rail

Safety glass is standard, and you can add sound-reducing glass or glass with a unique pattern. It lets in light, but it gives you and your family more privacy, and it’s available in Cascade, Fern, Reed, and Obscure styles. You can add a HeatLock coating to most types of glass for better insulation. Glass that filters out harmful UV light is also available. Blinds between the glass are optional for some sizes. You can also add a six-pin exterior lock, an auxiliary foot lock, or a gliding or retractable insect screen. Available interior and exterior colors include:

What Other Patio Doors Does Andersen Sell?

Andersen’s 100 Series Gliding Patio Doors use Fibrex composite material for better insulation and a low-maintenance finish. The 200 Series Narroline is similar to the Perma Shield, but it has natural wood on the inside instead of vinyl on the outside. For vinyl inside and out, choose the 200 Series Perma Shield.

The 400 Series Frenchwood also has a vinyl exterior, and the wood interior comes in pine, maple, or oak. The E-Series French Gliding Patio Door uses aluminum on the outside and wood on the inside. The A-Series is the most efficient option, and it uses wood protected by fiberglass.
